    How can that be? Maybe the standards for even illumination are not so high for this enlarger or, more likely, there is a lot of diffuse light bouncing around in the head. That is not a bad thing.

    If it's the same as the Omega, you shouldn't need any change of condensers. It works with all three formats by just a change of lenses.

    Oh lucky you! I don't even have anywhere to put an enlarger but that was kind of an afterthought. Hope you have much success with yours.
